Two Piece of News Today

- I see that the Ritz Carlton will build a second condo project in Uptown with condos priced from $700,000 to $8 million. (DMN p. 1D) - The Republican controlled Senate today rejected an attempt by Democrats to raise the minimum wage. It will remain fixed at $5.15 an hour as it has been since 1997. So now people can clean $8 million condos for $5.15 an hour. Incredible.
